With all the rain were having I had time to go throw the scrape iron and found stuff to make a 48" grader blade for theMF10.

I was surprised it works great. I was going to pin the mounting bars right to the blade with extra holes for changeing the angle

but I'm too lazy to get on and off every time I would want to change angle. It would have been stronger. Also got the seat cover and got that on.

I have been thinking about one for the Allis... Mainly because they did have one for it and the parts were easy to copy. I think I may have to steal your idea... Hope you don't mind.

I like the way the MF handles much better than the Allis. Even better would be to do one for my Suburban. It has more ground clearance, handle a bigger blade.

Beautiful 10 you have. Thanks for sharing.

That looks great. I have an old maintainer blade that's been cut down to 48" that would work great like that. Thanks for the pictures.

I been thinking of making a grader blade for one of my Springfields for a long time but never have, I was going to use a chunk of 3 inch angle iron though (manual lift). I may just copy some of your design, great workmanship. What is the adjustment lever off of? I have been looking to find more of them, they are nice.

I want one! I have found a few things for building one, if I ever get time. I have an extra set of QA mower attachments for the Cub's lift system. Also have watched through a thread for one on a Sears. I would love to find some old road maintainer wear blades to use, they are heavy and strong.

Poncho, I finally figured how you attached yours at the front, just not sure how you used the chain for raising it.

Nice job! :thumbs: They come in very handy with a gravel drive.

I made my JD from a cut down CL JD front blade. Side lever release lets me adjust the angle with my foot. GARDEN TRACTORS 622 (Small).jpg ~~ grnspot

That is an excellent job on the grader blade.
I like your idea for controlling the angle adjustment.

My challenge is which one gets the blade: Ford, Sears, or Cub? Maybe I need to make three. I would like to have the ability to tilt side-to-side. I need to look at some of the 'parts' I have been collecting for this. I have some galvanized pipe that looks close to sliding inside of another piece. If it will, then I can make it tilt. Also, I want it to rotate so the 'spoil' can go out either side. Kind of like a road maintainer/grader. That can be accomplished, just which one gets it? Decisions, decisions.
The Ford has a pusher blade, the Sears has a rear blade, but the Cub has neither.
